Your formula workes perfect! Fantastic!
And I learned a little more about creating formulas.

Since years back I have copied my bank's digital listing of my bank

is to transform these listings so I can calculate with the currency

colB&colC= text and colD is the currency as text. Each listing
consists of several hundreds of events (rows). The problem is that
the damn bank -- against all standards -- gives the currency values
with a dot (".") as thousand separator and "+" or "-" chars (plus or
minus) in the right end of each number (e.g. "987,65+", "1.234,56-",
"23.456,78+") -- which is against Calc's will.
By now I have managed to get LibO/Calc to accept all values less than

I'm not sure why you want to use Microsoft Word or Excel. You can
open a .doc file in LibreOffice (as a text file) and copy and paste
the table into a spreadsheet there. You can open an .xls file
directly in LibreOffice. If your bank's original data is plain text
or web material, you can import this directly into a LibreOffice
What formula/function gives the same result for the bank's currency
values bigger than 9.999,99?
e.g. "11.222,33+", "11.222.333,44-"
It's a bit messy, but this should work:
Cannot get the Fixed() -- when trying to eliminate the separator/dot
that way -- working in this 'project' either.
This is no help. If you already had correctly interpreted numbers
(which you don't: that's the problem), FIXED() would convert these to
text (with which you then couldn't calculate) - exactly the opposite
of what you are trying to do. Once you have your real numbers, you
can control their appearance by choosing appropriate cell formats, of
I trust this helps.
